Limbo Waterproof Protectors for casts and dressings

The LimbO is designed to protect plaster casts and wound dressings from getting wet during bathing, it can also be used for swimming and hydrotherapy.

There is a cellular neoprene seal which has a wide band of contact and therefore does not pinch the skin or feel constrictive whilst the main body is of a pliable waterproof material and is roomy and slip resistant.

The product is British designed and manufactured, with patents for design and manufacturing process granted or in process.

Initially designed for Orthopaedic use to protect plaster or synthetic casts it rapidly became clear that the product had wider applications in the wound area, where the non-contact nature of the main body of the LimbO made it particularly suitable where any pressure on the wound was undesirable.

Currently in use at over 200 UK hospitals and hospitals in every state in Australia the inherent flexibility of the design, particularly the compliant seal, enables the product to fit a high percentage of patients without the need for a multitude of models.


The LimbO waterproof protector is designed so that in Orthopaedic applications, with normal use, it will last through the period a cast should be worn. On average eight weeks.

In wound care it will last longer as it will be used in a less aggressive environment (i.e. dressing instead of cast) and patients have reported satisfactory use for periods over one year.

I just wanted to say that your product saved a trip to the Philippines for me.

I was tour leader of a group of 36 SCUBA divers, and although I was unable to SCUBA dive due to the broken arm, I was able to successfully snorkel every day. Even free-diving down to 6 metres or so, there was not one drop of leakage. The product worked brilliantly – easy to fit and at depth it just vacumns on to the cast and forms a great seal.

I have attached some photos I took whilst free-diving with Whale sharks in The Philippines.
